Spicy Mango Margarita

Refreshing tropical taste with a subtle sting…

Sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious spicy mango margarita! It’s deliciously refreshing – tropical sweet and just a little spice, brought to you by cayenne pepper powder. It’s just a pinch of cayenne, so think sizzle not fire in terms of heat. Of course, you can always adjust up if you want something extra fiery. This is one of those perfect vacation drinks – it just puts you in that relaxed island-living state of mind. So get ready to put your feet up.

You can pick up frozen mango chunks from most supermarkets, look for them in the frozen aisle alongside other frozen fruits. Or, of course, try fresh mango chunks if you have fresh mango around.
